According to Islam, Muslims Should Not Be at War With Jews

Sinem Tezyapar says, "Let us adopt a language of peace, a language of love. This is easy! And there is no other way."

Turkish political and religious commentator Sinem Tezyapar.

Turkish political and religious commentator Sinem Tezyapar.

As a Muslim, I have to clarify regarding some false ideas that have been taken for granted as “Islamic.” What goes between Israel and Palestine is an artificial conflict and, what’s more, it is against Islam from several points:

Relations with Jews: Muslims are not at war with Jews. According to the Qur’an, Jews have a special status as “People of the Book” and Muslims can establish good relations with them through marriage and the sharing of food. Kosher food is also lawful for Muslims to eat and permission has been given for Muslim men to marry Jewish women. So from an Islamic perspective, this shows that there can be no obstacle to living together and in harmony, and this is clear evidence that enable the formation of warm human relationships and tranquil togetherness between Jews and Muslims.

War only for self-defense: From an Islamic point of view, there can be only defensive war and war is only an unwanted obligation when one’s life, security and honor is under attack. Muslims do not attack, they can only defend themselves. War has to be inevitable at the point that one has to defend oneself. Even if it is considered obligatory for self-defense, it has to be carried out with strict observance of humane and moral values. To put it in another way, God granted permission for war only for defensive purposes, and Muslims are warned against the use of unnecessary violence. “Fight in the Way of God against those who fight you, but do not go beyond the limits. God does not love those who go beyond the limits.” (Qur’an, 2:190)

In another verse, God commands justice and warns Muslims against feeling rage toward enemies, so that their judgments are not impaired: “You who believe! Show integrity for the sake of God, bearing witness with justice. Do not let hatred for a people incite you into not being just. Be just. That is closer to heedfulness…” (Qur’an, 5:8) I don’t accept any kind of hatred between people, but even at those times when they are not strong enough to overcome their anger, they still are responsible to be just.

Protecting peace: When there is a peace treaty, both sides should adhere to the peace agreement meticulously, and commit not to attack to each other. Especially for Muslims, after making a peace agreement, according to the Qur’an one has to watch out to protect it and abide by it. This the way according to the Qu’ran. God says: “If they incline to peace, you too incline to it…” (Qur’an, 8:61) In the case of the Palestine-Israel conflict, when one side fires rockets at the other side, the other side is fully entitled (and obligated) to protect its citizens. If there is a peace agreement, in times of peace launching rockets from Gaza is a violation of the Qur’an. When Hamas fires rockets, it’s not firing rockets only at Israel, but at its own people as well; Israel retaliates and it becomes inevitable that civilians, including innocent children, are severely effected by this. The same goes for Israel.

Protection of civilians: There is no justification in the Qur’an for killing innocent people. God says that this is like killing all mankind (Qur’an, 5:32). It is a sin to target civilians or be reckless of their security during an attack. When Hamas launches rockets over Israel, there is no aim, no precise target, and thus these rockets fall sometimes on empty land but sometimes onto the homes of innocent Israeli civilians. It is a sin to take an innocent life, and it is also a sin to cause disorder, to cause people to panic. Another important matter is that Islam absolutely forbids suicide attacks. God says: “Do not kill yourselves.” (Qur’an, 4:29) Consequently, killing oneself and killing other people are both prohibited in Islam.

The right to live in the Holy Land: It is against any conscience and above all against the Qur’an to tell Jews to go somewhere else. Jews have been expelled from Spain, they have been slaughtered in Europe and there has been enormous intimidation against them in many places all over the world. So where do they have to go? These lands are places where their forefathers lived. The graves of their grandfathers are on these lands. And it is confirmed by the Qur’an that Bnei Israel will be living in the Holy Land till the end of the world. God says: “And thereafter We said to the Children of Israel: ‘Dwell securely in the Promised Land.’” (Qur’an, 17:104) and the Prophet Moses (pbuh) says “O my people! Enter the holy land which Allah hath assigned unto you, and turn not back ignominiously…” (Qur’an 5: 21) Thus, it is against the Qur’an to tell Jews to leave these lands; any Muslim who does so is in contradiction of the very Word of God Himself.

Let us not forget the sons of Ishmael and the sons of Jacob, the descendants of the prophets, are fighting one another. Both sides are Abraham’s children and surely the land is spacious enough for all. There is no real reason that we can’t coexist together. Let’s live together as brothers; dine together, have conversations together; let us pray side by side, Jews in synagogues, and Muslims in mosques. Let us adopt a language of peace, a language of love. This is easy! And there is no other way.

  1. Thank you for such an informative and enlightening article. The truth is more important than ever. Many groups are using the Qu'ran to achieve their own ends, at the expense of our faith and community. Peace is Achievable, but only thru education to of all peoples. Peace thru Love, Patience, and education. These are key.

  2. Hinda Blas says:

    Ms. Sinem Tezyapar's individual right as a woman to be a broadcaster is riding on very thin lines. As the mindset of the 6th century is growing throughout the Muslim world so that women lose all status as being an equal; of having intelligence as well as being a part in the business, political and entertainment worlds. Unfortunately Ms. Tezyapar is very young (a lot of makeup for such a pretty face) and has yet to see the real world. Her sentiments can land her into a lot of hot water and probably will.

  3. MashaAllah , elhamdulilah. Sister Sinem is a Messenger of Peace. You speak of Califate. The extremist wish to impose Harsh belives upon the Muslim people. Sister Sinems beauty is the spirit of Allah shining thru. We are working, thru education, to Teach the correct meaning of True Islam, the Qu'ran as it's intended. inshaAllah.

  6. Yehuda Cohen says:

    Is it democracy to allow insanity free rein in the public’s eye from those here who constantly support insanity? The Rambam, Rabbi Mosheh Ben Maimon (Maimonides), wrote a formal didactic (teaching) letter to the Yemenite Jews in 1172 informing them that Muhammad is a false prophet and insane. The Muslim’s prophet, Muhammad, advised his followers to drink animal waste, camel urine, (Sahih Bukhari, Ablutions (Wudu'), Volume 1, Book 4, Number 234)" US patent app. 2009/0297622 A1, PM701 (PM stands for prophet medicine). The Muslim’s god, Allah, in very clear Arabic, asserts that he fulfilled his promise to reward the People of Israel with the Promised Land, the same land that the later conquering hordes of Muhammadan Arabs claim as exclusively theirs CONTRARY to their own Quran. Al Israa 17:104 And We said thereafter to the Children of Israel "Dwell securely in the land (of promise)". Al Baqara 2:47 O Children of Israel! call to mind the (special) favor which I bestowed upon You and that I preferred you above the whole world. Al Maida 5:21 "O my people! Inter the holy land which Allah hath assigned unto you and turn not back ignominiously for then will yes be overthrown to your own ruin.” Yet, the Quran repeatedly states that all followers of Muhammad should kill the Jews. This insanity is published in the Quran and also in this talk back forum from the various Muslims and their supporters as one can readily see.

  7. Peace and Goodwill !! Happy holidays !! :)

  8. inshaAllah, MasaAllah, elhemdulillah Thank you so much, Brittany.

  9. Liad Bar-el says:

    Yes, Yehuda, this is just another Islamic Jihad tactic against the Jews much like the big bad wolf and little ridding red hood.
    The wolf (Islamic Jihad) is a villain by nature; evil is simply expected and accepted of him. It is up to Little Red Riding Hood (Jews) to “avoid” what the wolf has in store for her and protect her red hood (a symbol of her maidenhood).
    "What a deep voice you have," said the little girl in surprise.

    "The better to greet you with," said the wolf.

    "Goodness, what big eyes you have."

    "The better to see you with."

    "And what big hands you have!" exclaimed Little Red Riding Hood, stepping over to the bed.

    "The better to hug you with," said the wolf.

    "What a big mouth you have," the little girl murmured in a weak voice.

    "The better to eat you with!" growled the wolf, and jumping out of bed, he swallowed her up too. Then, with a fat full tummy, he fell fast asleep.

  10. No Liad, it isn't. I may be a Muslim now, but My Love of the Jewish People or Jewish state will never die. We are working to educate all peoples concerning the true Peaceful nature of Islam. We belive in The Rights of the Jewish state. The Fanatics have hijacked, then presented it, as truth. Haifa was once my home. The Jewish people welcomed me. Hezbolah hates me. Now, I am a soldier for peace, a Soldier for Allah, God, Hashem .inshaAllah, MasaAllah, elhemdulillah

  11. Brother Liad, if you seek the Truth, walk with me. Please look at building bridges, in Istanbul. The qu'ran tells us The Jews Belong in Israel. Please, take a look.

  12. All about what Muslims should do; not a word about what Jews should do. They too have to abide by some code of behaviour, or they are exempt of all morality. World is catching up with Islam, why not a peep into Judism, to figure out how it treats non-Jews and how its logic of Justice parallels or contradicts Islam's.

  13. Yori Yanover says:

    As religious Jews, it is our duty to embrace gentiles who follow the One God and who speak of love among God's children. I find it difficult to understand why the very natural expression of these sentiments from a Turkish person should elicit so much suspicion and ill will. Do we not trust in the ability of God's word to touch anyone but us? Wake up, folks, God tells us explicitly: "For My House will be a house of prayer for all the nations." Our job in galus was to promote just that, according to Maimonides — why aren't we able to rejoice when one such gentile has clearly gotten it?

  14. inshaAllah, MasaAllah, elhemdulillah Brother Ghulam, well spoken. The Qu'ran clearly forbids war, with self defense, in a very constrained sense, is permitted. The firing of Rockets must stop. Retaliation must also stop. The Jews belong in Israel. Muslims protected the Jews in Ottoman times. Jihad, as mentioned in the qu'ran means to strive to improve the Lower self. The Fanatics are Abusing the Qu'ran. The three books clearly state how we must live. The Jewish people are aware. Please take a look at the Link. InshaAllah

  15. inshaAllah, MasaAllah, elhemdulillah Broter Yori, yours is the language of peace. The 3 books clearly gives us a blueprinyt for peace. Wheater we pray to Allah, God, or Hashem, we all seek peace. Please, look at this link, and read the Header. You will be pleasantly surprised how much Muslims and our brothers and Sisters of Israel share in common. inshaAllah

  16. Yes, it's only the Jews who can kill muslim children, they can kill Jesus, they can poison Arafat to death, because they are the 'chosen people'…

  17. Yori Yanover says:

    Interesting combination there of world famous lies you packaged there, I'm not surprised you work for CRAB — you fit right in.

    Just for the record, Arafat was more likely poisoned by his lieutenants in the PLO than by anyone else, the Romans killed Jesus, if such a man ever actually lived, and the murder of Muslim children in Syria by blood thirsty Muslims is a daily feature on You Tube, check it out, not a single Jew to be found on those tapes, only Arabs murdering the offspring of their neighbors.

    These being you warped, misbegotten views, what brings you to our website?

  18. The writer asserts the legality in Islam of Islamic men marrying Jewish women, but not vice versa. This is because Judaism and Christianity (female, submissive) should be conquered by Islam (male, dominant). Other than that, she is right on. Any kind of a mixed marriage is either domination of one faith or culture by the other or a wishy-washy mess in which both sides lose their identity and the world is poorer from both ends.

  19. well shet mah mouth. She ain’t no li’l red riddin’ hood an’ yo’ ain’t no johnny-boy appleseed.

  20. I have never known muslims to be peacefull, they killed an american even when he had nothing to do with the making of a movie depicting Islam and how they treat their woman. You cant trust arabs they lie so much.

  21. Yori Yanover says:

    Mind you, this is not an article urging Jews to join Islam, nor is it even an article touting the advantages of one religion over the other. We don’t have to agree with all the points made by the author, nor with many examples of countering opinions in the very Quran sh is citing. All we should be doing here, as sane, reasonable, faithful Jews, is embrace this shiny example of fiercely opinionated author who insists on loving, rather than hating fellow monotheists.

    I could get by without inserting an equal-intermarriage clause in the Quran…

  22. Yori Yanover says:

    Are you aware of the difference between Arabs and other Muslims?

    Having said that, are you aware of the pitfalls that have been generated in history because of phrases starting with “You can’t trust _______” enter your favorite other?

    You are perfectly entitled to say, “You can’t trust Yechezkel Mishkin, he stole from me,” or even “You can’t trust the Berkowitzes, they have shifty eyes,” but to go as far as to include one and a half billion human beings in one neatly packaged mistrust is a bit much.

    I’m saying that not as a liberal, which I’m not, but as someone who took Statistics 101 at Baruch College. And got a B+. My professor was an Iranian, so maybe that puts my entire grade in question.

  23. Liad Bar-el says:

    Yori, when religions X1, X2 or Xn (unlimited religions) all are based on paganism and on the destruction of the Jews with hundreds and/or thousands of years of killing Jews; then, someone publicizes that he/she is a devote X1 or X2 or Xn, is there any wonder why we Jews are suspicious? For hundreds and/or thousands of years the conversion of Jews was by force and now the devote X1, X2 and Xn are trying to convert Jews by “love” in your face.

    You said: “…why aren't we able to rejoice when one such gentile has clearly gotten it?” In light of what I mentioned before, if such a gentile has clearly “gotten it”, then he/she would either be a person obeying the 7 Noahide Laws or a convert to Judaism. However, when one states that he/she continues to go against even the 7 Noahide Laws, it is very clear that it is that he/she that does not “get it” and that there is no such thing as real peace from them. It is rather another wolf dressed up like Little Red Riding Hood.

  24. Please, let us take up the Fight fo Peace for All peoples. The 3 books clearly state it. In the Ottoman Times, Muslims protected the Jews. The Qu'ran clearly states that the Jews belong in Israel. We respect all Religions.inshaAllah, MasaAllah,elhemdulillah buildingbridgestv.com

  25. inshaAllah, MasaAllah, elhemdulillah Brother Soheed, the Qu'ran clearly forbids war. The Language of peace is not only our Language, but the will of Allah. Please take a look. inshaAllah https://www.facebook.com/firstmate1060

  26. inshaAllah, MasaAllah, elhemdulillah Brother Sientje, I am an American Muslim that has lived on both sides of the fence. I am also one of the Highest decorated US Vets. I would like you to Look at something that may change your views, for the better. Let not the Fanatics that twist our Faith win. inshaAllah, MasaAllah, elhemdulillah buildingbridges.com and https://www.facebook.com/firstmate1060

  27. Liad Bar-el says:

    Sorry Yori but statistics and bell curves are rather hard to apply to the spiritual realm and prophesy when prophesy states that the whole world will be against Israel (Judaism); so, it not just or not only “one and a half billion human beings in one neatly packaged mistrust” but rather much more than that.

  28. inshaAllah, MasaAllah, elhemdulillah The Launguage of Peace. Here, as on most other sites, it is not hard to perceive the deep ignorance, bigotry, and even hate. The Qu'an, Gospel, and Torah has a blueprint for peace. We continue to come up short. Satan gives us so many reasons for war. Here, a Muslim speaking of peace. inshaAllah. buildingbridges.com

  29. IM JEWISH IM RELIGIOS JEWISH, THE JEWISH WHERE EVER THEY WERE NEVER FIGHT IN EUROPE OR ARB CONTRIES WITH WEPON NEVER! IN ISRAEL OUR HOLIYLAND WE HAVE ALL THE WRIGHT TO PROTECT OURSELF WITH NO NO APOLםGYS.LET START TO REALY WANT TO HAVE PEACE AND THEN WE CAN SPEAK PEACE.

  30. NO ONE SAYS THE ARAB LEADERS GOING ANF FOLOWING THE KOREAN, ESPESEALLY NOT THE" LEADRES " OF GAZA.THE CONTRARY IS THE RIGHT.

  31. Steve Brown says:

    Well done Ms. Tezapar. But it won't make a tinkers damn of difference between the state of Israel and the false state of Palestine–too many Islamic regional players derive a dark power from the conflict and sadly, must keep it going.

    And it is absolutely unbelievable that this writer is so uninformed.
    She needs to do some research and fact checking, because she is WRONG! And there is only ONE TRUE and living God, Aleph v'Tav the Alpha & Omega, it is not allah.
    The qur'an and the bible are not in agreement with each other.
    God does NOT contradict Himself. The Quran is opposite of the Word of God (the old and new testament).
    Jesus Christ – HaMashiach Yeshua is the ONLY way to the Father, and eternal life in Heaven with God.

  35. Gil Gilman says:

    On the other hand, Sinem Tezyapar believes that one may believe as they want with freedom of thought, but may not express that thought if there is the potential of causing a feeling of insult to religion by those who hear it. She says elsewhere, "Democracy is not freedom of insult." This is in regard to a world renown jazz and classical pianist help for trial in Turkey, who could receive 18 months in prison for hurting the feelings of those who brought the suit.

  36. Tim Upham says:

    I have been in ecumenical dialogue with Muslim organizations for years, and no they are not a hateful people bent on killing all of the Jews. We saw Jews very much being a part of the Abbasid Caliphate, and its counterpart, Al Andalus. Muslims today want peace and coexistence with Israel and Jews all throughout the Diaspora. Let them not be drown out by those who embrace nationalistic zeal, and non-literate interpretations of the Qu'ran. Because when we do, we in turn are actually hurting yourselves.

    Islamic- jewish relations started in th 7th century with the origin and spread of Islam in the Arabian peninsula. The two religions share samilar values, guidelines.and principles. Islam also incorporates jewish history as a part of its own. Muslims regard the children of Israel as an imprtant religious concept in Islam.

  45. helenblas says:

    Mr. Coleman, I know you mean well, however, actions speak louder than words. I do not see any proof of what you claim. How can you educate those who refuse to be educated? Where are the throngs of people like you openly condemning the actions of the enemies of Mankind? Please spare me the rhetoric because I no longer wear rose-colored glasses. I’ve seen first-hand what the Religion of Pieces do to innocents. I can give you countless acts of terrorism against innocents including the ongoing slaughtering of Muslim vs. Muslim. Look at the tinderbox that Obama et al. has gave their blessing to in Lybia, Egypt, and the ongoing homicide by Clinton’s Oslo in Israel. Enough speech. I do believe in HaShem and I believe in prophecies. Despite what you may say, Jews are not going to the gas chambers again on behalf of the Nazis and their partners the Muslim Brotherhood. Arafat was the nephew of the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, the best friend of Hitler who gave him a Koran while Hitler was in prison on which his Mein Kampf is based on. If one does enough research, one can find a lot of facts, not fiction. Israel will stay and defend her right to exist. The “Palestinians” aka Arafaters/Hamassvillans need to move to any of the other 26 Arab-Terrorist loving nations. It’s that simple. However, one last thing: may you gain many followers who perhaps if it is not too late will combat the terrorists who call themselves Muslim.

  48. Joe Cobb says:

    This advocate of Muslim teachings about Non-Initiation of Force is saying exactly what Libertarians believe.

  49. Asher Ugaz says:

    This argument is rooted in the traditional concept of the “dhimma” (“writ of protection”), which was extended by Muslim conquerors to Christians and Jews in exchange for their subordination to the Muslims. Yet, as French authority Jacques Ellul has observed: “One must ask:‘protected against whom?’ When this ‘stranger’ lives in Islamic countries, the answer can only be: against the Muslims themselves.”27

    Peoples subjected to Muslim rule usually had a choice between death and conversion, but Jews and Christians, who adhered to the Scriptures, were usually allowed, as dhimmis, to practice their faith. This “protection” did little, however, to insure that Jews and Christians were treated well by the Muslims. On the contrary, an integral aspect of the dhimma was that, being an infidel, he had to acknowledge openly the superiority of the true believer — the Muslim.

    In the early years of the Islamic conquest, the “tribute” (or jizya), paid as a yearly poll tax, symbolized the subordination of the dhimmi.28
    Later, the inferior status of Jews and Christians was reinforced through a series of regulations that governed the behavior of the dhimmi. Dhimmis, on pain of death, were forbidden to mock or criticize the Koran, Islam or Muhammad, to proselytize among Muslims, or to touch a Muslim woman (though a Muslim man could take a non-Muslim as a wife).

    Dhimmis were excluded from public office and armed service, and were forbidden to bear arms. They were not allowed to ride horses or camels, to build synagogues or churches taller than mosques, to construct houses higher than those of Muslims or to drink wine in public. They were forced to wear distinctive clothing and were not allowed to pray or mourn in loud voices — as that might offend Muslims. The dhimmi also had to show public deference toward Muslims; for example, always yielding them the center of the road. The dhimmi was not allowed to give evidence in court against a Muslim, and his oath was unacceptable in an Islamic court. To defend himself, the dhimmi would have to purchase Muslim witnesses at great expense. This left the dhimmi with little legal recourse when harmed by a Muslim.29

    By the twentieth century, the status of the dhimmi in Muslim lands had not significantly improved. H.E.W. Young, British Vice Consul in Mosul, wrote in 1909:

    The attitude of the Muslims toward the Christians and the Jews is that of a master towards slaves, whom he treats with a certain lordly tolerance so long as they keep their place. Any sign of pretension to equality is promptly repressed.

  50. Asher Ugaz says:

    The following are statements from the Hamas Covenant:
    “Israel will exist and will continue to exist until Islam will obliterate it, just as it obliterated others before it.”
    “Our struggle against the Jews is very great and very series. It needs all sincere efforts.”
    “The Islamist Resistance Movement is a distinguished Palestinian movement, whose allegiance is to Allah, and whose way of life is Islam. It strives to raise the banner of Allah over every inch of Palestine.”
    “The Day of Judgement will not come about until Muslims fight the Jews [killing the Jews], when the Jew will hide behind stones and trees. The stones and trees will say O Musims, O Abdulla, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him. Only the Gharkad tree would not do that because it is one of the trees of the Jews.”
    “Allah is its target, the Prophet is its model, the Koran its constitution: Jihad is its path and death for the sake of Allah is the loftiest of its wishes.”
    “The Islamic Resistance Movement believes that the land of Palestine is an Islamic Waqf consecrated for future Muslim generations until Judgement Day. It, or any part of it, should not be squandered: it, or any part of it, should not be given up. Neither a single Arab country nor all Arab countries, neither any king of president, nor all the kings and presidents, neither any organization nor all of them, be they Palestinian or Arab, possess the right to do that. Palestine is an Islamic Waqf land consecrated for Muslim generations until Judgement Day.”
    “This is the law government the land of Palestine in the Islamic Sharia (law) and the same goes for any land the Muslims have conquered by force.”
    “Initiatives and so-called peaceful solutions and international conferences are in contradiction to the principles of the Islamic Resistance Movement.”
    “When did the infidels do justice to the believers?”
    “There is no solution for the Palestinian question except through Jihad. Initiatives, proposals and international conferences are all a waste of time and vain endeavors.”
    “It is necessary to instill in the minds of the Muslim generations that the Palestinian problem is a religious problem and should be dealt with on this basis.”
    “Their lackeys who are infiltrated through Zionist organizations under various names and shapes, such as Freemasons, Rotary Clubs, espionage groups and others, which are all nothing more than cells of subversion and saboteurs. These organizations have ample resources that enable them to play their role in societies for the purpose of achieving the Zionist targets and to deepen the concepts that would serve the enemy.”
    “Secularism completely contradicts religious ideology. Attitudes, conduct and decisions stem from ideologies.”
    “We are unable to exchange the present or future Islamic Palestine with the secular idea. The Islamic nature of Palestine is part of our religion and whoever takes his religion lightly is a loser.”
    “Peace and quite would not be possible except under the wing of Islam. Past and present history are the best witness to that. It is the duty of the followers of other religions to stop disputing the sovereignty of Islam in this region because the day these followers should take over, there will be nothing but carnage, displacement and terror.”
    “The Zionist plan is limitless. After Palestine, the Zionists aspire to expand from the Nile to the Euphrates. When they will have digested the region they overtook, they will aspire to further expansion, and so on. Their plan is embodied in the “Protocols of the Elders of Zion,” and their present conduct is the best proof of what we are saying.”

  51. Asher Ugaz says:

    You can sugar coat ISLAM all you want but the facts remain; Islam is a genocidal death cult and the Koran is three most inaccurate, contradicting, unauthentic piece of literature ever

It seems that he may once have been a Holocaust denier (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harun_Yahya#Holocaust_Denial_and_Affirmation) but has since adopted a well documented policy of tolerance to Jews and support for our rights in Eretz Yisroel. He proclaims these views in Turkish and Arabic to his fellow Muslims. I see no reason to doubt his sincerity or that of his associate.

  53. Grace Acosta says:

    If "this is so easy!", then Ms. Tezyapar, with all due respect, I suggest you move to Sderot, and see how you like rockets falling around your ears. Move to Itamar, and see how you like being mistaken for a Jew, when you wake up to find that your children have been stabbed to death in their beds. Take your message to Hevron, to Jenin, to the Temple Mount, and see how your fellow "people of peace" receive your message. Take your message to the Taliban, and receive a bucket of acid in your beautiful face for your troubles.

    If you survive, please do tell us all about it.

    G-d forbid, I would not wish it on anybody, but you cannot ignore the fact that history does not lie.

  54. Erm, I'm sorry to be so blunt but when Israel invades Palestine, burns her crops, steals her water, & kills her people Palestine will fight back. The trick is not to mount armed invasions & colonise.

    And Islam is DEFINITELY not a violent faith. Nor is Judaism. It's extremists that bring in the violence. Not moderates like this lady.

  55. May God Bless you Sinem Tezyapar. May He protect you from the Muslims who may seek to harm you. May He help you to spread your message of peace amongst those who need most to hear it.

  56. Thank you for your heartfelt comments.

  57. Mr. Liad Bar-el, I understand where your suspicion comes from. However I am God fearing Bnai Noah, I know 7 Noahide Laws, and I abide by them. And not only these seven laws, I am observant of much more. I also made a study showing that a righteous Muslim is already a Noahide. As far as I am informed that makes us co-religionists. My religion calls believing in One and Only God, so Islam is definitely not paganism. You can confirm this with Rabbis who made deep studies on Islam. And Islam is not at war with Jews. I made a very detailed study showing that the ones who are trying to kill Jews are not practicing Islam right.

  58. When we discover some basic facts about Islam, our first impulse is to think, “But surely it’s only a small minority of extremists!” If you’ve looked into it, and especially if you’ve read the Quran, you realize the “extremists” are following standard, mainstream Islamic doctrine.

    Out of a dozen Islamic Leaders quotes reported in the article (see below link), I chose Erdogan since Sinem is Turkish. Readers are also invited to look at the say to deter “freedom of expression.” by OIC General Secretary Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu who is also Turkish.

    Recep Tayyip Erdogan: “The mosques are our barracks, the domes our helmets, the minarets our bayonets and Muslims our soldiers…”.
    Prime Minister Erdogan also commented on the term “moderate Islam,” often used in the West. He said, “These descriptions are very ugly, it is offensive and an insult to our religion. There is no moderate or immoderate Islam. Islam is Islam and that’s it.”.

  59. Jose Serhan says:

    Dear Sinem, you are completely right, all this is in the Holy Koran, Islam is not and will not be against the Jewish people but the world should be against the Zionist, that is a completely different story. The problem here is that some Jews consider themselves first Zionist, then Jew.

  60. God's precept is so simple to recite, is a bonanza for sloganeering, but impossible to emplement in a heart of man so saturated w/ hate and hypocrisy.
